international approaches to peace in syria clash wrong on the u.s. are stressing diplomacy while britain and france fall into on the rebels directly. that the sanctions surges in the middle east with reports israel's been hit by a little kid from lebanon which was grabbed by six towers tried cause by sewer and struggle across the border. also questions mount over the virtual method used by the french police against protesters following an anti-gay rally over the weekend with the installer she's accused of downplaying just how big the dissent was. and the powerhouses of china and europe struggle to avoid a trade war as the e.u. threatens to make beijing pay more to sell its products below market value.
hello and welcome to. news live from moscow my name is you are all at home ain story reason and france are pushing to be able to supply weapons to the sea where rebels and won't be you always embargo on the gulf country lifted the sanctions expired fine day and for now most european union members are strongly against arming the opposition this comes as the top russian and u.s. diplomats prepared to discuss final preparations for next month's international conference on syria she's just so seen there has the latest. we have the u.k. and france who are aggressively pushing for a lifting partial lifting of the go on syria in order to send arms to the rebels
the u.k. a foreign secretary william hague is trying to get the other e.u. members to agree with him that arming of the a moderate army the so-called moderate rebels in syria also france's leaders have been particularly aggressive in trying to lobby the other leaders to be on board in fact today. leading newspaper also published a report saying that serious forces loyal to bashar al assad had used chemical weapons because one of the reporters had experience effects of it critics would certainly point out that the timing of the publication especially since leaders are to make a decision today now on the other side you have france of the u.k. on one side on the other side you have several countries that lifting any involvement go would mean that arms could eventually end up in the wrong hands in violent hands in syria they're also pointing out to the fact that human human rights abuses have been committed by both sides which means it includes rebels in syria so again differences about this is that the subject of the conversation here in fact very good so if there is no agreement it seems that each country will have
to have its all sanctions policy on syria that's already what we've been seeing and if this happens a status quo does remain in syria the conflict continues let's remember the goal of this russia u.s. led talks for peace is to convince everybody to be on the same page or sit down for talks peace talks in geneva and now washington did indeed express their support for the rebels and this could prove to be a problem in trying to get all sides involved bashar al assad in principle had said that he will attend those talks however the opposition has said that they will only do so if bashar al assad steps down we go back again to these pre-conditions these differences in before making any steps or progress into the peace process and we've already seen that everybody agrees essentially to have a solution for syria the crux of the matter here is how to go about doing so each country seems to have its own vision of how to accomplish this goal and this is already what we've been seeing for the past couple of years and we can say that it
has been hampering any substantial progress in syria. london and paris are making a last ditch effort to bolster the seaward rebels who are losing the fight against a mosque as the middle east expert professor jeremy sold we know the syrian army is just about retaken completely the town of and that very shortly will move north towards homs to make sure that's completely clear and they will move on to hala and that of course is going to be a big struggle because the groups there is a woman changed so that what comes out of this is that the syrian army is still getting on top of this insurgency william hague made a bizarre state where he said that that is the embargo is lifted that extremism would flourish a chance for you all because we know that extremism in syria has lost simply because of the pump into the country the hague must know he must surely know there's no must that there's no way that the rich can recover from where they are now if they can't answer the governments know whether to do that so why is he
saying this and the only reason he can't have for saying this is that he wants to have a card in his hand when this conference begins next month in geneva but you know in other words that can be told the less you read what we want we're going to continue arming the rebels there's no other possible motive you can want to do that. the syrian conflict is causing tension in neighboring countries stoking fears it could spread across the entire region iraq has reportedly fired from lebanon into israel just a day after an attack on part of the lebanese capital in the latest escalation of sectarian strife in the country has made me correspondent for leslie is following the latest developments. the has been a leader hassan nasrallah has kelly stated that he and his below are involved in the war in syria he was addressing thousands of his supporters in the southern beirut suburb of dusk here on sunday and in that speech a pledge an all out support for the syrian president bashar assad saying that his shiite muslim group would stay in the syrian war to quote him to the end of the
road and achieve victory together. there are two major threats facing the lebanese people and the entire region today the first imitates from israel and its avid intentions and plots the second threat stems from the changes taking place in syria which neighbors our cities villages and homes syria is seeing major activity by radical islamist movements that's want to say that his war was with the extremists he called an attack fearless he said that tens of thousands of them from all over the world are currently fighting in syria and he warned that if syria forces they've been on to move forward this in turn he said would lead to israel we occupying lebanon now eleven his media is reporting that a rocket has been fired towards israel from the lebanese town of measure you and this is off to two other rockets landed in the has been a stronghold in doubt here on sunday the lebanese army saying that those rockets
were fired from inside lebanon towards the hizbollah stronghold the united nations has been concerned over his the lives involvement for quite some time she the arab chief the arab league chief has urged them to stop fighting in syria but misrata address this during his sunday address saying why is the u.n. not calling on the extremists to stop fighting inside syria and again reiterating that they are fighting not only for syria but for lebanon as well earlier there were also dozens of his militia fighters reportedly killed during fighting in a key syrian town of qusayr yo so what we do see is the tension on the ground heating up. the rebel syrian army has denied involvement in the rocket attack on beirut and to middle east affairs expert allie rees believes an opposition splinter group could be so blame some members of the free syrian army did either however there was one official who said that hezbollah you know its activity will lead to
repercussions that would target by the northern city of tripoli and beirut international airport and that perhaps is an indicator that some of these armed opposition groups of these syrian opposition groups are indeed involved in what happened one of the rockets even landed in the road church and it was on the border between southern beirut and the christian district so obviously this is not an attack on a husband. or institution it's a clearly an act of terrorism against innocent civilians on any inhabited area and so i think it just goes to show you the nature of these groups who we are dealing with. this is our see and so ahead for you this hour a global battlefield. on the you agree with me that when it comes to international terrorism we're talking about a worldwide struggle. absolutely so that. as washington continues to flex its muscles around the world we'll look at whether the never ending war on terror is
justified. central paris has witnessed violence on its streets over the weekend and last o'reilly in protest at the laws allowing same sex marriage morphed into clashes police crackdown on fire right acts of his who had joined the demonstration police arrested three hundred fifty people for if he's into his past or occupying private property colonizers insist about a million protesters turned out but authorities say it was more like one hundred fifty thousand francis saying proud as well as many become angry with present or loans failure to send the nation's economy straight and local and from the institute of democracy and corporation of paris also the demonstration and he told me earlier that the french government feel threatened. i think the french police under the leadership of the ministry of the interior regard these demonstrators british. an ideological threat to their power and indeed that's what they are
the ministry of interior had fully expected the far right groups to join the protests and provide clashes over four thousand police were mobilized to maintain security so why were they are unable to control the situation after all this is the government propaganda this is precisely the way that the government has been seeking to deal objectifies what is a massively what is a massive demonstration that is overwhelmingly peaceful they have gathered together a million people for the vast majority of demonstrating peacefully and you get to they were met in the run up to the demonstration on sunday with very hostile propaganda by the government the ministry of the interior said children should not go there is going to be violence it's not it was the very strong the impression we got very strong commentators and participants alike was that the government was doing everything it could to deal egyptian mys this demonstration and to discourage people from coming. and just like in france they show homosexuality remains
sensitive in russia as well and unceasing corpus kind of joins me now live to explain hi there you go or so why is it such a delicate issue that. just on saturday the police had to detain around forty people when a group of gay rights activists tried holding a protest rally against a draft law banning the sexual propaganda and were attacked by a group of a radical orthodox christians was a t.v. rights activist and pretty much is the same picture will be seen every time gay rights activists try holding or staging any sort of public events they are always attacked by a gay rights activist and so the recent nationwide poll conducted by you by the center really explains why since nearly forty percent of its responded see homosexuality right now as an illness which has to be treated forcibly and
medically by professionals while around thirty people a thirteen percent believe that homosexuals should be prosecuted when we're around twelve percent of the respondents. in russia as people who should have the same rights as heterosexual citizens if you compare the situation to france for instance and it's still a whole different picture especially when it comes to the amount of people taking to the streets either in support of or against gay rights but judging by the general conservative. conservative mood in a russian society it's very unlikely that we will see any rights parades taking place in any place in russia in the near future since even the if the authorities did allow them to happen then the simply wouldn't be able to provide the proper security to the activists themselves. cheesey or peace can all thank you very much indeed for that on day eighty four thank you. asian economic giant china
is in talks with europe's financial engine germany as they look to say to stay off a trade war the e.u. has accused beijing of dumping goods onto the market below cost price and demining its european rivals china's premier has warned let further scrutiny will only backfire on consumers ortiz peter all of a has been following the talks between the two. the new chinese prime minister is in germany for talks with chancellor angela merkel and trade is set to dominate those talks last year alone germany exported around sixty seven billion euros worth of goods to china and they want to see that increase in the future. has in the past made no secret about her want to call the chinese markets last year she visited beijing twice within the space of seven months and she's wanting to make sure that the trade can be done between the two countries especially considering germany's traditional markets in europe do appear to be drying up the financial crisis
meaning that those countries in europe that were previously buying german exports well really can't afford to do that at the moment she also perhaps has an eye on the future in a potential british exit from the european union that could see over seventy billion euros worth of exports put into doubt if great britain wasn't part of the trade union or that is the a you for the chinese they want to do more business with germany germany is one of the few countries they just kept its head above water when it's come to this financial crisis they've also that means that they're one of the few countries economically that can afford to buy more and more chinese exports so that's why we're seeing the world's second largest economy in china courting europe's largest economy in germany to try in chile to increase mutually beneficial trade between the two countries. this is all sea and social is the u.k.

doesn't even need to go to shake our reports. president obama in his major national security speech this may quoted james madison saying no nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare at the very same time the administration claims power to wage endless war across the globe there was a senate hearing this may revisiting the authorization for use of military force which congress enacted days after nine eleven attacks in two thousand and one at the hearing pentagon officials claimed that authorization gives the president power to wage endless war anywhere in the world including syria yemen and the congo and when asked how long they predict this war on terror is going to last they said quote from ten to twenty years of you agree with me that when it comes to international terrorism we're talking about a war one struggle. absolutely sure that would you agree with me the battlefield is wherever the enemy chooses to make it. is sir from boston the to the top
so by the administration's definition the wall that is the battlefield with me today is brian becker with the answer coalition brian thanks for joining ryan you have president obama saying that his national security speech that the u.s. is not engaged in a boundless war and yet you have this vast military presence across the globe does it look like the u.s. this really seeking to limit itself in the use of military force no in fact the policy in the institutional policy is for the united states then it would be prepared for endless war but that being engaged in all of the activities that would lead one to believe that they are an endless war there's one point three million u.s. military personnel three hundred to four hundred thousand of them are overseas there's nine hundred military bases the united states spends not five hundred twenty five billion which is the defense department budget but really about a trillion dollars on warfare that's greater than the next sixteen nations combined we see an integrated network of bases now drone bases growing increasingly this is to have a full spectrum domination using the military as the club the administration argues
that all their military actions in the countries that the u.s. is not at war with are perfectly legal under the u.s. congress it's authorization for use of military force that's their legal justification for continuing all these attacks what about international law well international law has been shredded by the so-called global war on terrorism or the authorization bill that allows the u.s. to invade any country bomb any country and kill whoever it wants the u.n. charter is quite clear the united states like all other member nations of the united nations can only go to war as an act of imminent self-defense but in fact the united states by arrogating to itself the right to war anywhere against anyone all the time is clearly in violation of international law but president obama. says the administration does not violate anybody's sovereignty because it operates in consultation with the governments concerned the whole population of pakistan their pouring moment unanimously remotely oppose drone strikes and yet they continue so
maybe the administration is in consultation with the government there but certainly not the people i'm going to meet today was brian becker with the answer coalition from our studio in washington thanks for watching. some stunning pictures from the russian city of carroll about waiting for you on our website imagine looking out the window and see hundreds of tons of metal heading straight for you as became a reality for the residents of this apartment block luckily no one was hurt so the line for the amateur video of the accident and pictures of the aftermath. and also there for you that companies public reacts to a slap in the face from a south korean newspaper which they will be here ashima and i guess like i told the bombings divine punishment for talk us past crimes check on the full story at all. the u.k.'s industrial food is on the app which should be a reason for optimism in britain's ones flourishing industrial regions but as our
correspondents are further found out there are covering. britain's industry seems to be showing some signs of life recent figures from the office for national statistics show industrial production is up which some of seen as a sign the u.k. might be slowly bringing itself back from the brink of another recession but renowned historian nicholas comfort has mapped the decline of the once industrial giant and says that when it comes to industry the k. is still falling far behind the global competition have been massive individual companies the second largest manufacturing power in the world in terms of exports we had a massive car industry a huge aircraft industry we will world leaders in computing and nuclear power. over that period pretty well all of this is evaporated along with the loss of great
british brands britain has gone from having the majority of its workforce in manufacturing to having little over ten percent so just how did this happen you know this clear need for all industries to keep being updated and relevant and the way to do that is to work closely with the workforce and to ensure that there is that modernization happening the life support was turned off for many. industries looted by the seemingly easy cash of the cities finance industry passed governments dismantled largest ways of british industry arguing they were no longer profitable or here in the northeast that heavy industry is a huge point of pride when the coal mines in the still works in the shipyards with this mantle it wasn't just the loss of the industry it was a huge emotional loss as well and it's one that many here have never really recovered from in the aftermath of the industrial collapse for skilled labor workforce there was little else today that it is evident with the northeast
suffering from the highest unemployment in the country. motion the shipyards the factories and the store. effect. things seem to be more difficult especially for paper. but along with the recent piece to manufacturing figures there are signs that things could be looking up the regions on your legs sports have almost doubled in the last five years enabling job creation in areas such as the car industry recent industrial resurrections might not be enough to replace what once was but this is at least an attempt to breathe life back into areas such as this and for many in the communities that could prevent a welcome lifeline surface r.t. in the north east of england and some news in brief here this hour the mayor of
london is calling for much tougher monitoring of islamic groups in universities or is johnson so segregated lectures should not bear loud he was speaking in the wake of the daylight model really rigby that sparked a wave of national park has by right wing extremists over two thousand people marched through a remembering this soldier had to death by alleged muslim extremists. the media group of government employees demonstrating for improved working conditions and pay clashed with police water cannon with kind of liquid was used to disperse the protests dozens of people were detained calling the rally. have you ever wanted to take to the streets and protest for an important cause or perhaps join the security services to try and restore peace well soon you'll be able to do both with a new ride media again. to come. soon you will be able to take part in a street protest from the comfort of your armchair coming out for handheld devices
and p.c.'s is the first riot simulator game wrapped in pixel graphics and old school sounds it will let you choose sides protesters or the police and help violent havoc unfold in the streets of european cities the game's designers say they have taken part in real life protests in italy so they floated this game to tell the true tale of global uprisings stop listening to the lies of the media shut down the television and get yourself in the line to fight for your freedom of speech is the message on the games website moreover the designers claim they are documenting eyewitness accounts to make the gameplay as real as possible and to answer many questions like what triggers acts of violence and what do cops feel when an angry mob attacks a game like this would probably have raised eyebrows a few years ago but today the world sees protests on almost a daily basis to a large extent street riots have become a popular media tool music stars film videos with violent street skirmishes and hollywood makes entire movies about street movements scenes of rallies worldwide
are ever present on t.v. screens which breeds a feeling that street upheaval is no longer something out of the ordinary the masterminds of the new addition to the whole protest many say their app is more about education than entertainment that i called one of the designers writing is an experience that needs to be lived and of quote and despite the fact that game hasn't been yet released it's already promises to be a hit judging by the hundreds of thousands of views over its trailer and the developers easily managed to get funding for the game online the rides better version is expected to be available within a few months and support is now. a u.s. senate committee has passed a bill that if signed by obama will love the u.s. to put a lot of weapons into the hands of syrian rebels this seems rather odd because many
of the factions that are revolting seem like bad people to be arming in fact one rebel factions al nasra which according to the guardian is an islamist organization with links to al qaeda is quickly becoming the most powerful rebel faction of all of them the b.b.c. even declared that al nasra has been designated as a terrorist organization by the us government itself as it started something like a bad idea to ship weapons into syria on american taxpayers' dollars yet let's just pretend that somehow all these weapons will magically not fall into the hands of al nasra well the free syrian army is that much better they seem perfectly happy to use rape and beheadings and genocide against christian alawite minorities with great glee to get what they want arming radical groups always has blowback if you remember back to just the one nine hundred eighty s. the u.s. funded and armed the taliban and those mujahedeen fighter guys and look how that turned out the u.s. government seems way too eager to arm radical foreigners and disarm average
americans when they should be doing the exact opposite but that's just my opinion. and i welcome to the action packed show with me. and here's a taste of what's to come. the champion's eye and robin school as the late winner is brian munich beat the us into open to want to wembley to win the european cup for the fifth time. while europol was with the top and bottom two already confirmed it was a scramble to get into europe how to avoid the relegation play offs on the last day in the russian premier league. and loads of the ring alexander given gallacher returned to tame the beast not that bad a carry such as
a shock defeat on a night of my action in moscow. but first a football whereby in munich won the champions league with a thrilling last two one win over brasil dortmund in the first ever all german european cup final at wembley because of him to top off reports from london by in munich came in to the point on the back of a seven eleven to get stunning or barcelona while dortmund saw real madrid four three to prove the triumph of german efficiency over spanish flair on the european stage and after two seasons of dortmund supremacy in the bundesliga boy and also regaining this year's the mystic title the twenty third in their history. the minute jones finished the season twenty five points ahead of their rivals and arrived at their third champions league final in four years as hold favorites but thousands of fans of the yellow and blacks could come to london what desperate to help their site.
